Microcephaly

Community, Stories & Info

Microcephaly is a rare neurological condition in which an infant’s head is smaller than usual. It can occur when the brain has not developed properly, and can be caused by a variety of genetic and environmental factors.  Microcephaly can be an isolated condition with no other birth defects or in combination with other major birth defects, and often causes developmental issues. Early interventions including speech and occupational therapies can help enhance development and quality of life.
